Phutureprimitive
Phutureprimitive
Phutureprimitive is the moniker of Bay Area producer and songwriter Rain. Early childhood photos reveal Rain sitting at the piano plinking keys, grinning from ear to ear… a true sign of things to come. Continuing his early fascination, Rain was later drawn to electronic music, inspired by its ability to combine the best of organically played instruments and the synthetic pleasures of sounds more exotic to the human ear. After beginning a DJ career in the 90s, Rain began incorporating the music he was making in his home studio into his DJ sets. That was all it took to trigger a full blown love affair with electronic music and the process of its creation... and Phutureprimitive was born.

Phutureprimitive's music is best described as dripping wet love drops of nasty mind melting sonic bliss. Lush melodies drift across intricate rhythms, groove heavy beats and warm, fuzzy bass lines. Often exploring a dark and dense palette, there is also a profound sense of tranquility and beauty, engaging the listener into hypnotic movement and often escalating into a full-on kinetic experience. Shimmering with cinematic qualities, his music ultimately speaks to the body, mind and soul.

Despite electronic music's tendency to suffer a short shelf life, Phutureprimitive has already demonstrated a timeless quality with his debut album "Sub Conscious" on Waveform Records, which remains the top seller on the label since its release in 2004, obtaining a cult status among fans and collectors. With a string of singles released in the interim on various labels, the birth of Native Harmonix (Rain’s own Record Label) brought us the “Luminous” EP in 2010; delving into a lyrical based production, supported by undulating synth work and a palpable haunting texture throughout. His second full-length release “Kinetik” forged new territories of emotional electronic dance music, exploring a heavier, bass-centric sound that adds raw energy to intricately detailed tracks. "Kinetik" remains on the iTunes Top 100 Electronic Music Chart, 3 years after its release.

With a new collection of songs released in 2 parts titled “Searching for Beauty in the Darkest Places,” he takes ideas from his previous releases and supercharges them with hard-hitting dancefloor appeal, while maintaining the depth and prowess this trusted producer is so well known for. His first national headlining tour in Fall 2013 debuted his collaboration with ritual dancer Caeli La. The tour launched with the release of their first official music video, "Lucid Dream," a collaboration with multi-media production team Vinton Depiction & Michael Miller, the animation/visual effects creator behind NBC's "Grimm." The Dance Out Your Demons Tour featured an interactive game, in which the audience members write down a "demon," fear, or something they are letting go of on a piece of duct tape, stick it to the bottom of their shoe, and then "dance out their demons." Due to the success of DOYD, Phutureprimitive announced that they will continue to incorporate the game on future tours.
Bluetech
Bluetech
Evan Bartholomew has been performing electronic music for nearly 20 years as Bluetech, Evan Marc, Invisible Allies (with
Kilowatts), and has recently joined the much buzzed about virtual reality startup MicrodoseVR, with Android Jones and the Vision Agency team, as the Lead Audio Engineer and Producer.
“As a lifelong musician and producer fascinated with synaesthesia and dreaming, Microdose VR is the closest experience I’ve seen to capturing the raw creative experience. I’m excited to be a collaborator on a project that democratizes the platform for anyone to be able to experience a flow state and immersion in the creative impulse. It’s a full audio immersive, synesthetic, transcendental experience where you get to paint with sound and light, and be inside music.” – Evan Bartholomew / Bluetech
As an an internationally recognized touring music producer with over 27 album/EP releases in the last 15 years, and a seasoned portfolio of video game and film scoring credits. Bluetech is a master of analog and modular sound synthesis and DSP audio manipulation, and brings a passion for sound design and cutting edge audio exploration into all the work he touches. His music transcends the constructs normally associated with a calculated “electronic artist,” pursuing music withmeaning and purpose with downtempo, future bass, and progressive electronic music, rife with emotional intent, and poly-rhythmic percussion.
Bluetech’s latest album “4 Horsemen of the Electrocalypse: The Black Horse” is the third of a four EP set. The Black Horse
release is an analog and modular based composition, in the same vein that he explored with his previous two albums “The Red Horse” and “The White Horse,” both released in 2016. Ranging from dark Detroit influenced electro, synthfunk, to more melodic techno explorations, this release pushes forward Bluetech’s unique analog based approach to sound and music production.
Bluetech began his training as a classically trained pianist at a young age, and has explored his craft as a DJ, musician, film
composer, record producer and label owner. His work has evolved to include his roots in classical composition and ear for nomadic harmonic progressions and a deep awareness of music as a kinetic force with body moving beat mechanics. Working as a solo artist, as well as a producer, he has also written scores for film & television (CSI: Miami, Scared Sacred, Occupy Love, Albedo Absolute, Various television commercials), video games (Comet Crash 2 – forthcoming PS4) and virtual reality installations (MicrodoseVR). In addition to music, Evan has established a reputation as an accomplished graphic designer, illustrator, and 3D animator through both his personal work and commissions for clients (Microsoft, Austin City Limited, City Of Seattle).
Having shared stages internationally with such acts as The Glitch Mob, The Orb, Bassnectar, Ott, Juno Reactor and many
more, Bluetech has toured extensively throughout the U.S. as well as Australia, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, Egypt, France,
Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, and throughout the United Kingdom.

Soulacybin
Soulacybin
Soulacybin was incubated as pure auditory information, coded deep in alien realms of distant, future space. This auditory entity was sequenced into the DNA of a mushroom spore, then propelled through time and space on a trajectory for Planet Earth. Upon arriving on our planet, the spore germinated in the form of Earth music, bringing its intricately coded information to us through precisely arranged sound and vibration. Representing the bio-mechanically fused organisms of its home world, Soulacybin balances deep, squishy realms of organic dub with digital, hyper-active percussion and slimy, stretchy basslines. Thriving on the nervous system of musician John LaBoone, Soulacybin is here to bring its yet-unknown alien message to lovers of deep, patient, thoughtful music.
